330ml bottle poured into the Libbey Craft Pub glass (like a pils glass but with a slight inward taper at the top).

A: This exciting ale poured a luscious dark brown like the color of beef stock or chestnuts. the head is a toasty tan, rocky and vibrant at about 2 fingers with medium retention. Full lace; the foam climbs up the glass.

S: Oh boy oh boy. Malty malt. Caramel. Figs. Prunes. Dates. Quite intense. All malt body. No hop. A little spicy fermentation.

T: Oh man. It's full of dark dried fruit, and then the malt backbone reveals itself: All toasty, roasty malt. Finishes with a slight bitterness from the roast. This is clearly an ode to rich malt as the West Coast IPA is to the hop.

M: Despite it richness, it feels bright and clean at first, but then coalesces into a sticky, but not unpleasant, tenacious syrup. Medium-heavy body with playful carbonation.

O: This beer is sensational. Not only the best bock I've had, but one of the best beers. Damn. I'd definitely pair this with roast game or roast pork with some spice. This is definitely an appropriate beer for roaring fires and red meat off the bone!

look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

a: Wondeful look in the pint glass. Dark browns, not muddy but darker richer browns.

s: very light roasted carmel tones

t: smooth on the tongue, slight roast after taste and some sweetness.

m: Looks full bodied, but mouth feel is lighter, thinner but in a good way.

o: Fantastic beer, we did pint glasses at 57F and could have drank a lot more. Generally higher alcohol beers taste like it, but this was simple and easy to drink with no hint of the higher alcohol esters.
